Keysight and MediaTek affirm M80 modem 3GPP Release 16 validation

May 6, 2021 - 3:00 PM - 5G

MediaTek used Keysight Technologies’ integrated 5G test solutions to validate its latest M80 5G modem to 3GPP release 16 (Rel-16) specifications. Using Keysight’s 5G platform, the MediaTek M80 verified features such as frequency range 1 and frequency range 2 carrier aggregation, (FR1+FR2 NR-CA), 5G Standalone dual connectivity (FR1+FR2 NR-DC) and others, based on 3GPP release 16 (Rel-16) specifications.

3GPP Rel-16 enables 5G connectivity enhancements including increased coverage, capacity, mobility and reliability, as well as lower latency and potentially improved power efficiency. Shortly after the global standards organization 3GPP finalized the Rel-16 specifications, the two companies have worked together to achieve physical player interoperability development testing (IODT); a crucial step all products much achieve towards commercialization.
